AMD S462 (2004) - Open Testbed
AMD Athlon "Thunderbird" 1400 MHz
This CPU produces 72Watt at default speeds and voltage, very close to the current top crop of Socket A CPU's. But when pushed to a speed of 1533 MHz with 1.9v vcore it comes close to producing 100Watt! Cooling this down with air-cooling is always a challenge.
Here are the full specifications of our test setup:
